I love Mindy Kaling. I like the fact that she looks and acts like a normal person and isn’t afraid to make fun of herself. I love her show, The Mindy Project, and I watch it as often as I can. I can even see a lot of similarities between things from her life and things on the show.
I was chomping at the bit to read Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me and Other Concerns. It was on my Goodreads list for awhile and I have been plotting to get it since it came out! When Birchbox picked it as a giveaway for their book club, I was ecstatic! I was obsessively checking all the entries and talking to my Birchbox tweeps (twitter friends) about it to see if anyone had heard anything regarding who won. Lo and behold, I won a copy to review!
I was so honored to be chosen to host a Benefit Cosmetics and Birchbox Beauty Bash to celebrate Wing Women, our real partners in crime! I chose 5 women who know me well and who also share my love of cosmetics. I am friends with a variety of women so it was awesome that my party was a combination of all ages and generations.Continue reading
Man, I love fruit! I can’t get enough of it and my daughter is the same way. I love making smoothies too. However, by the time you buy all the supplies, it costs you a small fortune! Well, I am not one to break the bank on a drink. I’m going to show you how to buy fruit for less and make this beauty for a fraction of the cost! Plus, I’m going to show you how to drink your frugal smoothie in style with Eco at Heart Stainless Steel Drinking Straws.
I have oily skin. As many times as people tell me that it’s combination, I call their bluff. I haven’t grown out of getting pimples. I still use skin care made for teens because of it. I’m one of the lucky ones, I guess. When I’m pregnant, woah Nelly! It gets even worse. I love trying things that claim to work on acne prone skin. I can honestly say that I will try anything once.Continue reading
This is our pug, Roger. He was a dragon for Halloween last year. Roger is a great part of our family, but any pug owner can tell you that they tend to have a slight odor after awhile. The vet told us that we shouldn’t wash Roger more than once a month due to his sensitive skin. Well, he gets that pug stink long before then! What’s a girl to do? I’m going to tell you. I tried dry dog shampoo awhile ago when I received a sample in the mail. The ingredients weren’t complicated so I decided to start making my own. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to make and how well it works!Continue reading
My daughter and I love to bake. We will use any excuse necessary to whip up some treat to take with us to someone’s house. So when we picked up a new cinnamon muffin mix at our local discount grocery, it was burning a hole in our pantry! I received a set of California Kitchenware Butterfield Silicone Cupcake Molds to try out and our plan was in place. The molds are flexible, reusable, and dishwasher safe! What’s not to love? I never have to buy paper wrappers for a small batch of cupcakes or muffins.
